簡單的平靜真理

如果你讓自己的生活很好,那你就會平靜的信念是錯誤的。實際上需要去消除這種錯覺。

生命是個現象,現象總是在變化。你改善的一切事物,只會維持一下, 直到下一個變化開始 。這是潮起潮落,它必須是這樣,來讓一切事物演化到它下一個最高的層次。演化是生命的支配力量,變化是個固定的原則。

你的平靜需要從內在被喚醒,它必須超越一切的情況。它必須比任何內在和外在的上下流動更深。它必須比這個世界更深,比你的身體狀態、情緒狀態、精神狀態更深。它必須實際超越整個變化的領域。

得到平靜的唯一方式,是透過進入靈魂的領域,沒有別的辦法。平靜屬於另一個領域;這是一個事實。平靜只屬於空。這個世界、身體、人格和頭腦的一切,都是現象,都是在運動的狀態中,無論是多麼的細微或輕微。即使是看起來沒有移動的無生命物體,如桌子或椅子,都是在運動的狀態中,只是眼睛不易察覺。當你認為自己在平靜中,這只是一個相對的狀態。這是相對於忙碌的平靜狀態,但它實際上不是平靜的。我們誤用了這個詞。我們知道平靜的存在,但我們對於平靜的唯一接觸只是近似的。

如果沒有你靈魂的渴望,如果沒有對於清醒的渴望,如果沒有對於進入你真實內在的家的渴望,你有什麼?如果你自己沒有的話,你有什麼?

如果你一直向外看,你會得到世界,但永遠不會得到自己。如果你想醒來,必須向內走。如果你向內走,不僅可以得到自己,也會得到世界。除非你與自己合一了,你如何與周圍的事物合一?你真的不能。與自己最輕微的分離會在每一段關係中浮現。你是真正的合一、真正的平靜的關鍵,它是源自於內在的。

大多數人完全與思考認同。如果思想不存在,也就沒有自我感。如果頭腦停止了,他們認為在頭的空間中就什麼都沒有了,只有黑暗,只有空的空間。人們與他們的真實自我就是這麼分離。頭腦能否得到平靜?你必須盡可能誠實的探索這個。大多數的人一生中都活在頭腦的領域中。你整天思考嗎?如果是這樣的話,你就活在頭腦中;你沒有活在現實中,與你更深的自我分離。

除非頭腦停止思考,我們無法開啟足夠的內在空間,讓我們是誰的更深真實浮現。進入平靜的領域從靜心開始,從進入非運動的領域開始;唯有在空之中,完美的平靜才有可能。只有當我們進入超越頭腦的狀態,靜心才有開始。透過這個完美的寧靜,我們開始遇見自己純粹的本性,我們純粹的真實自我。

很重要的是瞭解到,如果你不知道自己是誰,如果你沒有從覺醒靈魂的最深身份來生活,那麼你只是自我和頭腦。自我和頭腦活在恐懼之中。它們活在分離和對生活、他人、世界和對自己的恐懼之中。大多數的人,甚至在靈性道路上多年的求道者,仍然不知道自己是誰。他們在做療癒的工作,但療癒工作仍然只在人類自我上運作。這還不是靈性的工作,儘管他們的方式可能是靈性的。

只有當我們真正開始遇見自己的心靈、靈魂,和我們超越人類自我的真正和更深的身份時,靈性才會開始。為了真正遇見自己,你不僅要渴望,而且必須持續的渴望。覺醒是不夠的,你的生命必須與覺醒的流合一,以讓事情真正的改變。當你的生活變成覺醒的連續性時,那麼你就開始可以進入純粹平靜的領域,和靈魂真正的家。

Simplest Truth about Peace

It is false to believe that if you make your life just right, then you will be at peace. It is actually necessary to dispel this illusion.

Life is phenomena. Phenomena is always changing. Everything you set right is only right for a moment before it starts changing again. This is ebb and flow. It must be like that for everything to evolve to its next highest level. Evolution is the ruling force of life. Change is a fixed principle.

Your peace needs to be awakened from within. It must be beyond all circumstance. And it must be deeper than any flux, on the outside and inside. It must be deeper than this world, deeper than your bodily state, your emotional state, and your mental state. It must actually transcend the entire realm of change.

The only way to access peace is by entering the realm of the soul. There is no other way. Peace belongs to another realm; that is a fact. Peace only belongs to emptiness. Everything of this world, of the body, personality, and mind is phenomena. It is all in a state of movement, no matter how subtle or slight. Even inanimate things that do not appear to be moving like a table or chair are in a state of movement; it is just inperceptible to the eye. When you think you are at peace, it is only a relative state; it is a state of restfulness compared to busyness, but it is not actually peace. We misuse the word. We know peace exists, but our only access is approximate.

Without a longing for your soul, without a longing to wake up, without a longing to enter into your true internal home, what is there for you? If you do not have yourself, what do you have?

If you keep looking outward, you will gain the world, but you will never gain yourself. If you want to awaken, you must go within. If you go within, not only do you gain yourself, you will also gain the world. Unless you are one with yourself, how can you be one with anything around you? You really cannot. The slightest separation from yourself will show up in every relationship. You are the key to true oneness, true peace. It is born from within.

Most people are totally identified with thinking. If thoughts are not there, there is no sense of self. If the mind stops, they think there is nothing in the headspace, just blackness, nothing. This is how disconnected people are from their true selves. Can the mind attain peace? You need to inquire into this as honestly as you can. Most people live in the domain of the mind for their whole lives. Do you think all day? If so, you live in the mind; you do not live in reality, you live inside your head and are disconnected from your deeper self.

Unless the mind stops thinking, we cannot open enough internal space for the deeper reality of who we are to emerge. Entry into the realm of peace begins with meditation, it begins with entering the realm of non-movement; only in emptiness is perfect peace possible. Meditation only begins when we access the state beyond the mind. Through this perfect silence, we begin to meet our pure nature, and our true selves as that purity.

It is important to realize, if you do not even know who you are, if you are not living from your deepest identity as an awakened soul, then you are only ego and mind. Ego and mind live in fear. They live in separation and fear of life, others, world, and self. Most people, even seekers for a long time on the spiritual path for years, still have no idea who they are. They are doing the healing work, but the healing work is still only work on the human self. It is not yet spiritual work although their approach may be spiritual.

Spirituality only begins when we actually start to meet our spirit, our soul, our true and deeper identity beyond the human self. To truly meet yourself, you not only want to, but you must continue to want to. Awakening is not enough, your life must become one with the flow of awakening in order for things to truly change. When your life becomes a continuity of awakening, then you begin to gain access into the realm of pure rest, the true domain of the soul.
